Tom Lusk Guidance Center

May 31, 2013

The
Building Our Future campaign will receive funds up to $75,000 from the Newark
Catholic Foundation for every dollar donated or pledged in Tom Lusk’s name. The
BOF committee will use this money to build the new Guidance Center. When the
project is completed, it will be named “The Tom Lusk Guidance Center.” As
of December 16, 2013, we have received over $65,000! 

$10,000 to go!!!!!!

 

We have begun the bidding process so that we will be ready to build once the weather turns good again in the spring. With ONLY $10,000 to go, we know that we will get this project completed with your help!

 

Everyone
who has been a student, parent, grandparent, teacher, coach or faculty member
at Newark Catholic as been helped by Tom Lusk in some way. Whether it was
his smile when he said “Good Morning,” his sincere interest in your wellbeing,
or when he helped you as a parent or student to make college more affordable,
he was always there to make sure you were alright.

 

With
this “gift” from Tom, we can all repay him for the many gifts he gave us. You
can show your thanks to Tom Lusk, and his family, by donating money in his name
for the good of the school he loved. Any amount is acceptable and will be
matched by the NC Foundation. We will accept gifts and pledges with a two (2)
year maximum on pledges. We can accept monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and
annual pledges. We can automatically deduct your pledge from your account or
place it on a credit card (Mastercard & Visa only).

 

You
will be receiving an updated mailer with up to date information and an envelope,
for your convenience, to mail in your gift or pledge.  

 

Please
take a few moments to reflect on your relationship with Mr. Lusk. Then discern
how much you can donate to help build the new Guidance Wing in his honor. It’s
not often we get a chance to say “Thank You” to someone who positively affected
our lives in such a grand way. Everyone who makes a donation or pledge will be
honored in the new Guidance Center along with the man who honored each of us
with his patience, diligence and love for everyone looking to better
themselves.
